Crawford left Hamilton Academical in May hoping to secure a move to England, but was then offered a trial by the Hearts manager Craig Levein.

He impressed in a friendly against Arbroath last week, however Steven Naismith's return to Tynecastle Park on loan from Norwich City scuppered the chance of a contract for Crawford.

The 26-year-old has wasted no time in finding another club. Doncaster are eager to add a creative midfielder to their squad and have agreed terms to make Crawford their next signing.
